Nebulous bright Goodbaby, goodbye N. Beersford Total Time: Some of their singularity may be due to financial constraints, so that very few drums are used, and half of those are programmed, and Mauro Moroni of Mellow Records produced the album, giving a cavernous and echoey aspect to the whole oeuvre. From a prog perspective, the group seems to have blown its budget on the compelling opening quasi-title suite, which includes the only authentic percussion, flutes, many shifts of mood within an ethereal framework, and some JADE WARRIOR styled languid guitars.
Subsequent tracks offer many beautiful melodies and moments, with plenty of gently yet ponderously strummed acoustic guitars, and occasional simplistic Enter Sandman - Metallica - 200% Ultra Hits that sound profound when uttered with Italian accents.
The blending of male and female vocals is done in a charmingly amateurish way that somehow works. While Linda Clifford - After Loving You abound, nostalgia offers a path to acceptance and forgiveness, which I freely embrace in the spirit in which this sweet production was offered. The songs are good, but not exceptional. I found the vocals rather weak on parts, expecially the male voices mazzeo is no singer, which is very strange for an italian outfit.
The lyrics are naive, ok, but I could live with that. Maybe they would be better if they sang in their native language. But if you like simple acoustic melodies, with some folky and jazzy parts then you should check this out.
Quite peaceful and pleasant to the ear. Not much progressive stuff here, though. You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
